The Madonna in Sorrow
by Giovanni Battista
"The child’s father and mother were amazed at what was said about him; and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, 'Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted(and you yourself a sword will pierce) so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.'...
and his mother kept all these things in her heart." Luke 2:33-35, 51
